My Son and I were very favorably impressed with Dr. Dcunha. His knowledge, demeanor and interaction with his staff and with us, gave us a most gratifying sense of confidence that we were in the right hands for the care that will be required.
The staff was very professional, friendly and helpful.
I realize how busy a surgeon can be and wonder if he is actually given time to enjoy his existence. The value of a competent man in this field is incalculable and I hope that enough reward and downtime are available while he is young enough to enjoy them.
All the staff work together to provide a team effort for patient care in this office.
I had very good care!!
I feel very blessed to have Dr. D'Cunha for my doctor. He has shown kindness and compassion, in addition to his utmost competence, in providing care for my situation.
The cadio thoracic team was excellent during my lung biopsy from the or to the floor. I actually only saw Dr DChuna twixe but he was very professional
Dr D.'s abilities in surgery aren a gift from God and I am so thankful he was there when I went critical and all the time he and his staff have spent with me over the past year and a half.
VERY PROMPT AND INFORMATIVE ABOUT UPCOMING PROCEDURE
I was quite fortunate to be referred to Dr. Jonathan D'Cunha who is an expert cardio-thoracic surgeon. He was able to complete my lung surgery with no complications. I was confident in him from the first consultation last December through this most recent post-surgery follow-up. During that first visit, he explained all possible outcomes and what we would do in each situation depending upon the test results. He explained all biopsy and test results with patience. He spoke respectfully to the patient and friends and family who came to the office visits and during surgical appointments. I feel healthier today and ready to continue my additional medical treatment at Hillman Cancer Center which my final diagnosis requires. I was blessed to begin this medical experience with Dr. Jonathan D'Cunha.
I have the highest positive comments for Dr. D'Cunha. He is a highly intelligent, compassionate surgeon who respects and educates his patient and their family. He answers all questions skillfully and patiently. He lets his patient know that he will guide them through very difficult times in their life. A patient cannot ask for more than that.
